Formula used:
Percentage = (Part value/Whole value) × 100
Calculation:
Total number of girls
300 + 750 + 1300 + 1400 + 850 + 500 = 5100
Total number of students
5100 + 800 + 1300 + 800 + 900 + 700 + 400 = 10000
Percentage of girls studying in the college
(5100/10000) × 100 = 51%
∴ The percentage of girls studying in the college is 51%
